Benefits of WebLN
WebLN comes with a couple of benefits:
- Better UX WebLN allows for programmatic interactions and reduces friction between a Lapp and user’s wallet. Users don't have to switch context for scanning a QR code to make a payment anymore. Additionally, they can sign a message with one click to prove ownership of a wallet. If a WebLN client supports auto-payments, no prompt is needed and the user is just one click away from sending a payment.
- Ready and secure WebLN is a specification that only describes how to interact with a Bitcoin Lightning wallet. There is no need to trust and integrate a third party library. Over the years WebLN has developed and has been recognized as standard within the community.
